. >> the largest possible deal. >>chris: the president wants to go big so why are the numbers going down? welcome, everyone, i am here for neil cavuto in "your world." a new round of debt talks get under way at the white house but it is not all smiles. because the president's listen is not looking so grand. we have gone from talk of $2 trillion in cuts to $1.7 trillion and now closer to $1.5 trillion. and there is in guarantee that money won't go lower as the talks drag on. utah republican senator lee thinks we need to go back but $1.5 trillion in cuts spread out over ten years is that going big? >>guest: no, in the big at all. i am not sure it is going anywhere. one congress cannot bind another congress. so no matter how big the cuts are, if they are stretched out over 10 years and not accompanied by a constitutional amendment we have no guarantee they will be followed. >>chris: do you get a sense both sides are trying to get a deal and making it small enough to be palatable because the democrats and the administration will not make a big deal without tax increases, so both will take small incre
ingle downtown in new york. gregg: there's a big battle going on over spending, it actually shut down the state of minnesota. lawmakers failing to meet a budget agreement for the midnight deadline last night. so the government is closing up shop. both sides, still at odds over how to eliminate a $5 billion state decifit. >> the democrats and republicans need to stop acting like crips and bloods, gang members. >> i just don't understand how when you shut down a government and we shut down all of these jobs that are going to be lost right now, how are you going to increase and solve a budget crisis when you're not employing people? how are you going to solve that problem? it doesn't make logical sense. >> you never know how long it's going to be so i don't know want my plants to die. they told us to do that, get ready. >> stu join us, democratic governor, republican legislature, you can see this one coming down the pike. i wonder how it's going to end and who will get the blame. >> that's the question, who gets the blame but you're right, this is a standoff taking place across the count
. the indication that we're getting now is that this is a big deal, that this is going to be very large, and that everything is going to be on the table as far as bringing the corporate tax rates down, closing tax loopholes, but also cuts in entitlement programs, medicare, medicaid, possibly talking about social security and changing the way it works in the long term. these are big items that obviously could not get done legislatively before the august 2nd deadline. if there was some agreement reached between the leaders to raise the debt ceiling and agree to the framework by which they are going to tackle these big ticket items, that would be a significant thing. and it seemed like both parties were so far apart it will be interesting to see through the weekend if there can be some negotiated deal on a big framework. martha: it's interesting, bret because we've heard a little bit of what has come out of the preliminary discussions that vice president biden was part of. it seemed as though in those discussions they would talk big dollar figures although they wouldn't talk about specific
, and it cracks. what happens is the road actually buckles or explodes, as they say, which leads to those big, major potholes. that causes traffic jams, it also leads to city budgets being drained because of the work crews. it's not just the roads. you look at some of the homes. again, the ground dries up, no rain to moisten it, and what happens is it cracks. and when the ground cracks, your home settles. when your home settles, the foundation -- as you can see there -- cracks. it is a major, major concern. listen to this. >> we're just noticing them all over the outside of our house. i am worried. um, i don't know what to do, i mean, do i keep my hose on or my sprinkler on? >> reporter: when the temperatures stay in the 90s for extended period of times, the -- periods of time, the problem for farmers is trying to keep their animals and plants cool, and it's almost impossible, so you have many animals that are dying. that leads to rising food prices. listen to one farmer. >> those birds were full size, current goes off, i've got less than five minutes to get fans running. and if it fries some
on this planet as we know it today. that is a very big deal. chris stirewalt joins me, fox news digital politics editor, i should say. so, chris, how long do we have on the planet, life as we know it? what's your take? >> i'm not buying anymore green bananas. [laughter] it sounds like we're headed into real trouble, doesn't it? martha: it sure does. >> well, look, the speaker -- the former speaker, pelosi, now the minority leader in the house demonstrates that before you get to the end on something like this, everybody has to say something totally over the top, and now she's taking her turn. the truth of the matter is we're probably closer now to a deal and closer now to a bipartisan resolution than we ever have been because as house republicans start to saddle up behind john boehner's plan getting over their grumbling about the fact that it doesn't give them everything that they want, it brings us closer to the final vehicle which will get republican and democratic support in the senate and move us on to an increase in the debt ceiling and some kind of a deal. martha: yeah. you know, there are
: the last 48 hours this investigation has gone from about this big to this big. some officials may have already been caught lying. not only that, now we're told u.s. wasn't just helping send guns to mexico, taxpayers paid for some of those guns. and more than one federal agency knew about it. that's the latest in the scandal we know as fast and furious. according to sources an f.b.i. informant allegedly used taxpayer money to buy guns on behalf of the cartels, the f.b.i. knew it, they allowed it to happen and they failed to tell congress or the agency that was investigating him, causing that agency, the atf to spend two years, thousands of man-hours and millions of dollars pursuing information the f.b.i. already had about a man, the atf would never be allowed to arrest because he worked for the f.b.i. this information was confirmed this week sources say by the acting atf director ken nelson who met secretly on july 4th with congressman darrell issa and senator charles grassley. nelson who is going to be the fall guy in this scandal dropped a few bombs in his deposition indicating others
something that that big a deal. so are you concerned, congressman west, about what happens come august 2nd? and that if it is, you know, the situation where people stop getting social security checks, that folks like you will pay for it come election time? >> no. my concern is we have a president that is not willing to do his job, and that is to prioritize the spending that he is digging in his heels being a rigid i'd log, and he must understand that every single one of his economic policies have failed. it's time he realize that he does not have the moral high ground in this argument and that we do have the right type of viable solutions in the near term and for the long term. martha: let me ask you this, in the caucus meeting that you were in this morning, what did you walk out of with in terms of whether or not there's going to be any deal? are we going to get any deal, or are so many republicans in the house basically digging in their heels and saying no deal? >> well, i think the thing right now is that we understand there's some principles that we're looking for, pretty much exactly
a piece of legislation, so stay tuned. bill: we shall. it will be a big deal come next week. jason chaffetz, thank you, out of utah. martha: another day at the office, really. one group of workers, union workers, just sort of, you know, having a joke, a little smoke, booze, at the lunch hour. you know? the same kind of stuff we do around here, bill. one reporter got up close and personal. this is fascinating. bill: they don't have us on camera, though. martha: thank goodness! bill: team usa, world cup final, sunday at 2:00, what a day this was, abby wombach, she's like a superhero. martha: love her. bill: that header put her one up, team usa will play japan for all the marbles. martha: love it. bill: sunday afternoon. go usa! back in a moment. bill: some stories developing in "america's newsroom", there is new violence erupting in pakistan, gunmen in the streets of karachi, opening fire, leaving seven dead and more than two dozen injured. >>> dozens of suspects connected to the mexican mafia in custody after a huge gang raid in california. the mexican mafia, considered the oldest a
question is whether they can move, pasoo move past thinking about this big deal, move towards the possibility of a 2 1/2 trillion dollars deal, and whether they can come to some conclusion that that's not going to work, it's not going to get past the house, if it has any tax increases. that's the bottom line. we've heard it from speaker boehner on my show yesterday. it's just a matter of head counting. and now you have senator mcconnell's plan out there that he describes as a last ditch effort, but it's already getting praised by democrats like senator reid and house speaker nancy pelosi, so the going bet now inside washington is that they'll continue to talk to try to get to some bigger deal, but that the escape valve is there and it may be in the form of senator mcconnell's potential. martha: that raises a lot of questions about how a deal that looks like that would do in the house. and we heard president obama last night in an interview basically saying if they don't come to a deal, social security checks are in jeopardy, as westerly as august 3rd. here's a piece of sound,
,000 in a nice check, here you go. >> look, whenever you've got a big government give away of real money, a billion dollars you'll have economic questions and some moral problems as well. for example, who gets the money and who decides who gets the money? the criticism would be that maybe those people, they've been mow lit tpoliticized, and the pt is buying folks with money. two people, equal, both in trouble on the mortgage, one gets help, another doesn't get help, that is moral hazard, you have to ask that question as well. where does the money come from? every dollar that our government shells out, 40-cents of it has to be borrowed from somebody else because we don't have all that money, we are borrowing 40-cents on the dollar. is that moral to be shelling out a billion, and borrowing 400 million to do it? martha: the calculation there has to be on the part of the administration that it's even worth it for us to go deeper into debt for that 40-cents per dollar, because bailing out these individuals who can't stay in their home is going to ultimately help, you know, sort of prop up the
augustway, there is big-time fighting going on in house. we have a fight between congressman west of florida and congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz. break down the fight and start off with what wasserman schultz said that angered west. take a listen. >> president obama vowed to veto this bill which ends the medicare guarantee and incredulously the gentleman from florida who represents thousands of medicare beneficiaries as do i is supportive the plan to increase cost for medicare beneficiaries. unbelievable from a member from south florida. >> andrea: okay, whether it's truthful or not, that was just policy. here is how west reacted in an e-mail to wasserman schultz. >> for her to follow me on the house floor after i have given a one-minute speech and i talked about facts and figures as far as the debt ceiling and her to make personal references to me after i had left i didn't appreciate that. she is not a victim. she has been attacking allen west for quite some time. i finally had to let her know enough is enough. >> eric: hold on. that was his explanation for this. right here that he s
are nowhere near that. that's a big gap between 18,000 and 250, i don't need to tell you. so president obama since he took office, we have seen the economy lose two and a half million jobs. that's a fact. that's just the raw numbers that are out there. so there's a lot of questions about what kind of impact the economy will have on president obama's re-election hopes. take a listen to how the treasury secretary, tim geithner, responded to that question about the president's economic record. listen to this. >> you talk about what's good for the economy, a lot of this discussion about debt is, ultimately, to free up space for jobs to be created. it's not happening. people are still out of work. here's the charter of the president's economic record, this is based on government information, treasury department, u.s. bureau of labor stats. unemployment, 7.3% on inauguration date, up to 9.2% with the latest report, you see the debt figures up 35% -- >> let me just say, that's a ridiculous table. martha: that is a ridiculous table. we're going to talk about that. is it? we've got a fair and balance
're doing. not getting a big reaction from that in the mainstream media. we're going to have a fair and balanced debate on that moments from now. >>> and we continue to keep one eye on this story, awful breaking news coming in the from norway after that bombs -- bombing earlier. now reports that a gunman went into a youth camp, and the wires are saying that a number of people have been shot in this incident. ambassador john bolton joins us now in three minutes on that story as an investigation is now underway following another deadly bus crash on our nation's roads as well. one person is dead, dozens more are injured, and we may be joined moments from now by the soldier who helped to save lives at this scene. he became a first responder. this is an incredible story, and we're trying to get a conversation with him going. we'll keep you posted on that. >>> also an ohio policeman under fire for a rant that was caught on his dash cam. did this officer overreact? the we're going to play that tape for you, you can see what you think. be right back, more "america live". >> what's the first
and the president addressed, you know, the budget, entitlements, supposedly entitlement reform. instead he got a big slap in the face. paul ryan was not sitting back on his heels waiting for someone tolls lead. guess what else he got from the white house for doing that big slap in the face and disrespected as he sat and watched the president. that's how they deal with people. >> another example today, laura. senator mcconnell took president obama up on his challenge and said please come over and they said it's not a conversation worth having? >> laura: two fundraisers today, dana. the business of campaigning seems to trump the business. >> they better look out because the ads that others are putting forward are a lot better than the messaging coming out of the entire administration. shep. >> laura: meanwhile joe trippi. people in the republican field scoring pretty big numbers who haven't even announced they are going to be in the race. like governor perry of texas and even giuliani gets some numbers. what gives there? i think romney is doing a lot of things right but i think there are other folks t
is it the big question of default and whether or not it would indeed have to happen? weigh in, you can see what other folks are saying there, we'll check back in on that survey in a little while. let's go for a moment to the state of alabama where educators are raising concerns about the state's new immigration law. the people who run the school district are complaining that following that law may put them at risk of losing federal funding. jonathan serrie has that story live from atlanta. >> reporter: sponsors of the new law say it's going to give alabama taxpayers an accurate assessment of just how much they pay each year to support public services, including education for illegal immigrants. but some public school officials say it places them in an uncomfortable position. some alabama educators fear the state's new law cracking down on illegal immigration could jeopardize millions of dollars of federal funding for public schools. at issue is one provision requiring schools to report the number of undocumented students they enroll. phoenix city school superintendent larry dechera says it's eu
. >> is this as big as wanted to go? heck, no. we ran and going bigger. but this is the only proposal on the table that accomplishes the goals we set out to do. martha: that defines what's going on. duffy says he will vote for the bill because he believes it's the best one out there. bill: if you were able to follow everything last night in the house. in the senate some conservative republicans are not supporting the deal boehner has on the table. kentucky senator ranlds paul talking with sean hannity ex -- nor rand paul explaining why he would vote against the boehner plan. >> it will add $7 billion to the debt. it doesn't change the course we are on. if we froze spending. if we didn't spend any more money next year than we spent this year. washington would count that as a $9.5 trillion cut. why? because we are going to add $9.5 trillion to the debt. when they tell you they are going to cut a trillion, it's from proposed increases in the debt. it isn't meaningful. bill: paul says there are perhaps as many as 14 republican senators who will vote no on the boehner debt deal fit makes it out of the
inches of killing their next big target on the terror list, u.s. born radical muslim cleric anwar al-awlaki, the al-qaida leader linked to several deadly plots against america. jennifer griffin is live with the breaking story today from the pentagon. she has the details on it. >> reporter: we knew they had come very close on may 5th to nearly killing anwar al-awlaki four days after the bin laden raid. we did not know what went wrong with the mission and how close they came to killing lack r-r who as you mentioned is the american-born cleric, the most wanted terrorist after osama bin laden. we have cleared fro have learnea griffin missile made by rate three on. this is the first time we've heard discussed public plea about these missiles. they were attached to a fixed ring manned plane for the may 5th mission. they are significantly lighter than hell fire missiles and can strike trar gets such as the pickup truck that anwar al-awlaki was driving in at the time. there was manned aircraft including these marine harrier jets which ran low on fuel and had to pull back from the mission at
drucker. workingf late this is a big story. david, i know a lot has been coming out since the president and john boehner spoke earlier w headed. what are you hearing? >> both sides, both the speaker's office and the white house were dueling in terms of the numbers and the framework and who was backing off this and pushing for that. although it may sound counterintuitive, the fact that the speaker wants to take this to the congress' level, negotiate with reid and other congressional leaders on both sides of the aisle might help this. they can figure out together where the votes are try and get something through each house and get it to the president. at this poin^ anything the president gets he will sign. i originally thought it was best to have the president in the room, because he could give the democrats cover and direct them as to where he wanted them to go. for whatever reason it doesn't appear to have worked. you might as well do the it now and not have a middleman who going to vote for what. >> that's really interesting. when you think about it, dave the knock against the presiden
. there was a moment in time when president obama was talking about doing big things and being the guy and turnin turning this into a much needed win by a beleaguered president. we are seeing this fade away, we are seeing the administration give control of this discussion to capitol hill, just like with other things. martha: as you say, in previous confrontations when it came to healthcare, stimulus, all of that got pwubgd back to congress to work out the details. he looked like he wanted to be out in front of this. why do you think he changed his mind? >> reporter: it's really hard. being president is really hard but also doing a deal like this is really hard because the scope of what you're talking about isn't -- this isn't about money. we heard over the w weekend, or it's 400 billion on this or 800 billion on that, there is a chasm which exists between the republicans and the house, the conservatives from 2010 and president obama who is puerto rico the hreu ral wing of the democratic party and his victory in 2008. there is a rubber game that needs to be played here, that is the 2012 election a
of his life, he had moved -- hired a moving company called two men with big hearts moving and storage. but he fell behind in his bills to this company. this storage company because of medical bills that had piled up for him. >> so he just passed away and the family is trying to figure out what they're going to do at the funeral and what they would like to do is get a hold of some of his military stuff, including his two purple hearts but the problem is that particular company is owed by the family $600. the family went over and talked to them and they knocked it down to $500. but nonetheless, they would like to have the stuff for the funeral next tuesday but they got to come up with $500. here's the son of the veteran. >> he was a very patriotic person. >> dad wanted to go out in a blaze of glory. that was on the back of the fire truck. something we want to give for dad. that was one of his last requests. >> he had it for five years. it would be thousands of dollars. don kennedy owns the company so he's not going to release the stuff as of right now unless they pay the $500 which is
is because he hasn't been tough enough, and there wasn't a big distinction between him and president obama, and he's showing that once again now. martha: all right. talk to me, you know, when you look at this politically, "the wall street journal" basically said this morning if tea party encourages its members and representatives on capitol hill to hold tight and not give any ground in this, they're basically handing the presidency to barack obama again in 2012. what say you? >> what are we talking about? are we talking about who's going to be our next president, or are we talking about fixing the problems that face america? we need to quit worrying about the next elections and worry about whether we're going to survive financially. and there are plans that could do it, there are other plans that can't, but nobody is looking at the overspending, looking at directly in the eye and saying we have to stop this. we spend over $4 billion a day in borrowed money. that's enough to build two and a half space shuttles a day. martha: wow. well, that's an eye-opener. jenny beth martin, thank you very
